"The situation surrounding Coronavirus is constantly evolving. What is clear is that the only way to protect the community from further spread is to stay home. Another thing that has become abundantly clear is that there is a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE). PPE is essential for healthcare workers to protect themselves so that they can continue to care for patients.
“With this in mind, in the spirit of community, we are asking any dentists or physicians who may be closing their offices during this time to donate their PPE so that we can continue to have our healthcare professionals safely care for ill patients."
Physician/dental offices interested in donating should visit www.statenislandusa.com/PPE and fill out the intake form. A staff member from Borough Hall will be in touch shortly to arrange pick up of your donations.
